    I’m having trouble tracing my grandfather, Paul Martin Pemper, from Ledenice,Croatia. He was very proud to be Croatian. I wish I had asked more questions when I was a kid.

    I AM THE Petranovic guru, I have been researching as many branches as I can fin records for. The Petranovic surname originated in Croatia. IT is not as old as alot of other surnames, but I personally believe it was change and Petra was the original version. The Petranovic people lived in numerous town acrossed Croatia. I have been translating 1859-1890 in the town of Delnice. The Petranovic individuals married Kezele, Plese, Tomac, Majnoric Mance and Cop. If you had family from Delnice during the time period above and have any questions, Just email me or reply here and I will try to help if I can. Rebecca Petranovich

    I’m looking for Pobar, from Vis, Croatia. The island was previously Lissa. I’m looking for John Pobar b. 1853-1854, who immigrated to the US in 1880. I am aware of a Pobar family from Volosco area that immigrated to Australia, but I don’t believe that is the immediate family I am searching for.

    Nedostaju vam mnoga hrvatska prezimena, poput Puntarec, a nema ni prezimena Šivak ni Pelesk, po kojima su čak nazvana i sela u Zagrebačkoj i Krapinsko-zagorskoj županiji. Provjerite i dodajte.
